A lot of negative comments about the ticket situation, cash gates etc but on a positive note two attendances over 600 to start the season is a great effort so the club cant be getting it all wrong.I have just checked the football attendance webpage running from 2012/13 and its surprising how few times we have broken the 600 barrier,in fact I make these games the 16 and 17th best supported in the ten seasons covered. I firmly believe there is massive potential for growth in the area and its been great to read about the kids festivals and seeing whitehaven miners on Saturday as we need to be regarded as the team representing all of west cumbria. Let's hope we can keep the crowds returning this Saturday
Can I ask what are the negative comments regarding the ticket situation? Trying to come up with a system that will benefit the club and the fans.
The negative comments are from people not happy with no cash gates at the first game and the lack of online ticketing and I am aware that a cash turnstile has now been put in operation and derwentender has covered the online issue on a separate thread. Back to our attendances the 3rd game was just short of the 600 mark but with home games on the next 2 Saturday's and a Tuesday game with Ramsbottom everyone needs to spread the word and bring in the casual supporters ,gates of a thousand are not totally out of our reach with this set of players
Reds have never had the support they deserve from local people. Disgrace really when you consider that our current team of talented players are exciting to watch and give 110% every game. The new manager is proving to be a very resourceful, experienced and very proactive with a very good ability to connect with the supporters. I saw him swig some beer after the game against Clitheroe and thought that was so human after a brilliant performance Proud to be a life long supporter of the mighty Reds! Good luck on Saturday Reds even with the injury list! COYR
A fantastic crowd on Saturday pushing towards 700 was followed by a sub 500 for the Tuesday night game,must be slightly disheartening for those at the club, cant believe that early rounds of champions league games are that appealing, any suggestions to increase numbers?
